AMD's Ryzen 7000 series processors are much faster than their predecessors
AMD's due to officially unveil their Ryzen 7000 series of processors later this month, but that has not stopped the specifications of AMD's Zen 4 Raphael lineup from leaking online.
Today, thanks to WCCFTECH, we have gotten a look at what should be the final clock speeds of AMD's Ryzen 7000 series processors, with all models boosting past 5 GHz. This is a big deal for AMD's Ryzen 7000 series, as these higher clock rates should enable a healthy performance boost over AMD's current-generation Ryzen 5000 series processors. Add on any IPC boosts that AMD can deliver, and AMD's Ryzen 7000 series should be very impressive.
For all of AMD's leaked Ryzen 7000 series models, the base clock speeds of their processors have increased by 1,000 MHz or more, with AMD's Ryzen 9 7950X and Ryzen 7 7700X seeing base clock speed increases of 1.1 GHz. These clock speed increases should allow AMD's Ryzen 7000 series processors to run at higher clock speeds more consistently. What's even more impressive is that most Ryzen 7000 series CPU models now have base clock speeds that are comparable to the boost clock speeds of their predecessors.
With CPU models like the Ryzen 9 7950X, AMD has managed to increase their base/boost clock speed by 32%/16% respectively over its last-generation counterpart. These alone are significant performance gains, especially when considering that AMD's latest processors also offer users 2x as much L2 cache, DDR5 memory support, and other Zen 4 architectural enhancements.
For AMD's Ryzen 7 7700X, base/boost clock speeds are increased by 32%/17% over the CPU's last-generation counterpart. This 8-core CPU model is expected to be popular amongst gamers, given its strong balance between core count and single-threaded performance.
|CPU||Cores/Threads||Core Architecture||TDP||Base/Boost Clock||L2+L3 Cache|
|Ryzen 9 7950X||16/32||Zen 4||170W||4.5/5.7 GHz||16 + 64 MB|
|Ryzen 9 5950X||16/32||Zen 3||105W||3.4/4.9 GHz||8 + 64 MB|
|Ryzen 9 7900X||12/24||Zen 4||170W||4.7/5.6 GHz||12 + 64 MB|
|Ryzen 9 5900X||12/24||Zen 3||105W||3.7/4.8 GHz||6 + 64 MB|
|Ryzen 7 7700X||8/16||Zen 4||105W||4.5/5.4 GHz||8 + 32 MB|
|Ryzen 7 5700X||8/16||Zen 3||105W||3.4/4.6 GHz||4 + 32 MB|
|Ryzen 5 7600X||6/12||Zen 4||105W||4.7/5.3 GHz||6 + 32 MB|
|Ryzen 5 5600X||6/12||Zen 3||65W||3.7/4.6 GHz||3 + 32 MB|
Sadly, we cannot comment on the real-world performance of AMD's Ryzen 7000 series processors at this time, as there are too many unknowns that will can impact this. Does AMD's architectural enhancements with Zen 4 benefit gamers outside of offering them higher core clock speeds? Should we expect larger performance gains than these clock speeds suggest? For that information, we will need to wait for reviews.
